A Little Mayo Never Killed Anyone. Right?

I had a dream about a sandwich last night. A sandwich that I ate approximately 32 years ago. In a downtown park in Denver, outside of the Natural History Museum. Probably the best sandwich I ever had in my life. A perfectly perfect piece of edible art that will forever hold a place of honor in my mind. It could be probable that I remember that sandwich more than my own husband by the time I’m ninety. I can still smell it. Taste it. Feel it’s warmth in my hands. A sandwich that will never be recreated in the history…

Pay it Forward Died with Me

Before I get too deep into the nitty gritty of this story I want to make it clear that I am not a bad person—for at least 96.2% of the time. That other 3.8% consists of a couple of things that I will just never share (and is the biggest reason why I resist trying any kind of hypnotherapy) and a few things that just make me feel like an utter asshole. I just want that bigger number to be known before I cop to something that has kind of led me down a shame spiral lately. No, I didn’t…

Stuck in a Taco Bell Drive-Thru

Hey everyone,  I’m trying to get back on track with writing now that I am back from gallivanting around southern Colorado and decided to jump back in with a re-post.  I’ll have something new soon. Thanks for hanging in! They got me. Arggggh!  I wasn’t paying attention to anything but the fact that my stomach was on fire and I had to eat, RIGHT NOW, and I saw that there were only two cars in the order lane.  Split second decision later and I was contemplating a quesadilla or a burrito.  Now, I know I’m not really supposed to be…

A Good Day or Not? The Jury’s Still Out on This One

The day started off great.  I had a kid that was eager to get out of bed and go to school and I had a new, firm resolve to follow the new eating plan I had put together the night before.  The sun was shining and I felt okay enough about myself to put on another short sleeved shirt to wear to work instead of resorting to a button up with long sleeves.  The sun was shining and the mountains looked spectacular and I was just ready to take on the world.  If I could have lifted my ass into…

Just For Fun–I Can’t Resist the Temptation

Hello my friends, I am having a lot of fun sharing my latest post with you (read it here) and it got my brain churning.  After a week or so of somber writing and questioning serious things I decided I just wanted to have a little fun today.  I wanted to pose a question to everyone out there: What food or drink item can you not resist, even if you’re extremely full or on a diet? I could probably list 15 different foods, from all food genres, but I have to say that I will always eat a piece of…
